Nearly two dozen Redondo Beach homes lost power Monday after a delivery truck rolled down a street, hitting a pole, two retaining walls and three parked cars, a resident said.

No one was injured in the accident that occurred about 2 p.m. on Van Horne Lane just east of Prospect Avenue, said Eric Cuomo-Jones, a Van Horne resident.

The truck rolled into the pole before proceeding to hit cars parked in two driveways and damage the barrier walls, he said.

"Didn't see it but definitely heard it," Cuomo-Jones said of the accident. "It was so horrendously loud.

Redondo Beach police were compiling an accident report Monday night and offered few details about the crash.

The utility company expected to restore electricity by 6 a.m. Tuesday to 20 customers living along Van Horne Lane west of Goodman Avenue, said Southern California Edison spokeswoman Nancy Rodriguez Casanova.

The accident blew out two transformers, she said.
